The rules of your incorporated association should specify the qualifications for membership (if any). The rules should also set out the circumstances in which a member ceases to be a member. For example, if failure to pay an annual membership fee will result in the termination of a membership, this must be specified in the rules.
Register of members
Your incorporated association is required to keep a register of members. It is also recommended you keep a register of committee members as part of your records. Under privacy laws, any person has the right to inspect records kept about them (e.g. membership details) and seek correction if they believe they are inaccurate. For more information about privacy, visit the Office of the Information Commissioner website.
